Welcome to my new home.

Hi there!

Welcome to the new home for my blog. For those of you who don’t know me here is a small blurb about myself:

For many years I’ve been .NET Compact Framework MVP/Device Application Development MVP and a part of fantastic OpenNETCF initiative. My old blog should be at the same location:

http://blog.opennetcf.org/ayakhnin .

Recently I’ve joined Mobility group at Microsoft Consulting Services and will continue doing what I love – developing for Mobile devices. And now being inside I hope I’ll continue providing you with the tips/tricks in the managed development for Windows CE/ Windows Mobile.

    Good morning Alex,

    I have been reading your blogs about gesture recognition and really appreciate the sample you posted.

    I am very curious to implement these gestures on an application wide basis.

    I have some questions however. This implementation reports 0,0 Control.Position locations if your gesture begins ontop of a native control such as a button or listbox etc.

    Is there any solution for this?

    For example I may want to scroll the screen downwards on a down-drag gesture however if the form is filled with controls this 0,0 location causes the gesture recognition to fail.

    Thanks and take care,

    Hi Simon,

    I’ve just ported the code from vbAccelerator to CF, so there might be some bugs, so you’d need to try to figure them out yourself.

    Thx… Alex
